Before you submit your online entry, you will need to have a single PDF document prepared for each of your entries (maximum 10MB for each entry). This should contain all of the three steps below. When your entries are ready, submit your entries via this online form.

In addition, if you are having difficulty deciding on the content, layout, and design of your entry, we recommend that you download the Corporate & Financial Awards entry guide. This is a guide to help you decide what to include in and how to shape your submission.

STEP ONE - Entry summary

Please provide a short description of your entry in no more than 300-words. Please include a sentence or two regarding why your project fits into the category entered. 

Please remember, if you are entering one project into multiple categories please tailor your entry to fit each category and state why it’s a good fit for each category. We have provided different entry templates for each of the types of categories. You can find the entry guide here.

STEP TWO - Entry Statement

Provide an entry statement explaining your work in no more than 800 words; bullet points are fine. We advise that your statement tells the narrative of your work thoroughly, outlining the initial objectives, the strategy implemented and the results. The best entries clearly relate the results back to the initial objectives and make the entry specific to the category being entered.

STEP THREE - Supporting materials

Supporting materials may be submitted to help the judges evaluate your entry. All supporting material should be included in your single PDF entry document (max 10MB). Materials may include reviews, media coverage and additional information about your entry, organisation, project credits or third-party organisations that contributed. 

Usually, if you are entering a category with a printed report, we recommend that you post a hard copy of the report to us by the entry deadline. However, we appreciate that for sustainability, less reports are being printed, so you are welcome to send a pdf version of your printed report so that we can distribute this to our judges. Judges do like kto leaf through a printed report, so if you'd like to post a copy to us, send it to:
